Three (3) researches conducted by CCGeo faculty-researchers were presented in different technical parallel sessions of the 40th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS) 2019 held at the Daejeon Convention Center (DCC) in  South Korea on October 14-18, 2019.

Engr. Meriam Makinano-Santillan presented the paper entitled “Above ground Biomass Estimation of Mangroves in Siargao Island, Philippines Using Sentinel-1 Image” in the “MoA2 – Remote Sensing of Forestry 2” technical session. The paper was an output of an off-shoot study of the Geo-SAFER Agusan Project, and an undergraduate thesis by Engr. Charlene Bolastig, and also co-authored with Engr. Jojene R. Santillan.

On the other hand, Dr. Michelle V. Japitana presented her doctoral dissertation entitled “A Geoinformatics-based Modeling and Mapping Techniques for an Integrated Surface Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment” in the “MoB2 – Remote Sensing of Environment 2” technical session.

Both Engr. Makinano-Santillan and Dr. Japitana also served as Chairs of MoA2 – Remote Sensing of Forestry 2, and MoB2 – Remote Sensing of Environment 2 technical sessions, respectively.

Finally, Engr. Jojene R. Santillan presented one of the major outputs of the Geo-SAFER Agusan Project, entitled “A Web GIS-based Visualization and Analytical Platform for Near-real Time Flood Characterization, Forecasting and Impact Assessment” in the “ThF1 – GIS & GNSS 8” technical session.
